Generic SIP Phone Configuration
Any phone that has achieved Junction Networks certification has also received a knowledge base article for phone configuration with the OnSip Hosted PBX. These instructions are for generic SIP phones and phones that have not been through our lab yet.
Gather information for each user.
For most SIP devices, there are only five fields which must be entered in order for the SIP device to register with Junction Networks. Those fields are:
- SIP Address (Address of Record)
- SIP Password
- Auth Username
Each SIP device may call these fields something different. Here are some examples:
- SIP Address may be called => address
- SIP Password may be called => auth password or just password
- Auth Username may be called => authorization username or auth user id
- Username may be called => user, phone number or user id
- Proxy/Domain may be called => proxy, domain, registrar, registrar server or SIP server
In the OnSIP Hosted PBX administrative interface, you will find the SIP settings in the "Phone Configuration" box under each user.
Disable NAT settings.
It is important that all NAT settings are turned off. Disable any STUN or ICE settings. If you have an option to "Use Internal IP Address" or something to that effect, do it. We need the phone to report its internal IP address to Junction Networks and we will capture the external IP address from the actual packet headers.

Confirm that your phone is registered.
